Shocking in Bihar: Thieves steal entire train engine from the railway yard!

In what has become a weird heist, a group of thieves had stolen an entire train diesel engine from a railway yard in the Begusarai district of Bihar. The thieves had dismembered the engine and dug up a tunnel to carry several parts. The heinous crime has drawn a nationwide attention and the Railway Protection Force (RPF) police have arrested three people in connection to the theft. 

According to reports, the diesel engine was brought to the Garhara yard for repairs. After noticing the engine, a group of men chalked out a plan to steal it entirely. They had dug up a tunnel from the other side to the yard and they stole the engine part by part. They had taken the separated parts of the engine to a scrap godown. 

The police on Friday said that a case has been filed into the unprecedented theft. PS Dubey, the Inspector of Railway Protection Force (RPF) in Muzaffarpur, said three people were arrested after a case was registered last week at the Barauni police station for the theft of the diesel engine. 

During the investigation, the three arrested men admitted to the crime and said that they dug a tunnel to the railway yard, through which they carried the locomotive parts and other items of the engine in sacks. The robbers had also confessed about the owner of a scrap godown during the interrogation and based on the information, searches were conducted at the godown in Prabhat Nagar, Muzaffarpur. 

Following the searches, the police had recovered 13 sacks full of equipment used in trains. Dubey further said that the recovered items include engine parts, wheels of the train engine, and several parts like heavy iron. Citing that a manhunt is on for the owner of the scrap godown, Dubey further said that the gang is also involved in removing the bolts of steel bridges and stealing their parts.
